Student Life Spotlight: Chelsea Skinner on getting out of your comfort zone.

“Do not confuse motion with action” – Benjamin Franklin

The college experience is filled with opportunities to make memories that will last a lifetime, but do we truly take advantage of them? 

I often talk to students about branching outside of their comfort zone and connecting with the world around them. As someone who struggles with social interactions, I understand how scary it can be to try something new. Taking action has lead me to discover so much about myself and what I have to offer. My passion lies in encouraging and supporting others throughout their journey.

Taking action looks different for each person and depends on what the person aspires to achieve. We all face barriers that slow us down, but when we take an active role in our lives, the possibilities are limitless. My hope is that each of you take a moment to reflect on what you are truly passionate about and make your dreams reality.

About Student Life Spotlight

Over the new few weeks, a different staff member in Student Life will share a piece of themselves with you. They’ll reflect on what’s important to them, and what they believe will help you to make the most of your time at Texas Wesleyan.

No, they won’t be simply pitching their programs and services at you under the guise of a cleverly crafted article, but rather, digging deep to identify what has been most transformative about their experiences in life thus far, and passing that wisdom as best they can on to you.
